lose 35 jobs when it shuts down. you lose jobs let schools and at local government. that is the real cost of what his policies are bringing out by supporting bureaucrats in washington. one neighbor at a time, you've got two avenues to take. one is a government solution of believes government can bring you a job. and me, who believes we can revitalize and reenergize and renew the enthusiasm for montana if we can get government out of the way in our regulatory policy and in our industries. it is not just the businesses that will turn things around. it is those who will -- to work for those businesses who will help to create better opportunities for ourselves, our children, our businesses. i look people in the eye as i travel a run montana and i do not see statistics. we do not necessarily want to talk about the unemployment rate statewide. there are 56 counties with 56 cultures and histories and their own desire for their own future. and in liberty county and might be agriculture. in lincoln county might be timber. in eastern montana it might be oil and gas and coal. i want to get gove
to be the federal government is the message to california. they need to pull back from their own regulations. i do think that we have this opportunity that it all fits under a growth leg. i think we would say -- and governor kasich is looking at this and governor davis is working on it, so you take the energy issue and say now i can fix some of the infrastructure needs that have been piling up. if we start doing that, we will be short on labor in this country. we will need to retrain the people who are not trained or skilled. the potential is enormous if there's any vision and any leadership. >> we will take questions in a moment. first i want to ask about the front page of the new york times, campaign finance and the super pacs going into the congressional races, a small super pacs. all of you, presumably, involved in congressional races. >> no, we are switzerland. >> what is the role for business in government and in election campaigns? >> there is a major effort that's been going on for some time in various ways to force business to back away from participating in both the election process and
on them by the government. >> he estimates the fact that as governor in eliminated the estate tax and took more than 100,000 low income virginians of the income tax rolls. i just thought i would correct him there. george and i have very different strategies. this is one of the most important programs that has ever been done by the government. more than 50% of american seniors have retired into poverty before it was passed. thank you we have -- thank god we have those days behind us. that would've been a huge catastrophe prior to the collapse in washington. what i would do is allow the payroll tax of words as a way of protecting the solvency of the program. on medicare, george allen supports the ryan budget that would turn medicare into a voucher program and push costs onto the seniors. i propose a senior savings costs, for example ending the prescription -- that we get. that would save us without jeopardize in the benefit of all. >> mr. allen, to ask both of you to take one minute to respond to tim kaine's assocation about medicare and to support the ryan budget? >> what i support is prese
make it seem as though that when you talk about limits on the national government, that's antithetical to the constitution, the existence of a national government. it's embeddedded in the original argument. it argument was about limits. it wasn't about -- you hear this kind of and all these people trying to push us back to the article. that's ludicrous. and that's -- but helped to develop the constitution. .. the same time you understand there are some people still fighting the debate that engage in that debate and subsequent to that even in the adoption of 13th and 14th and 15th amendments you still have so we are still talking about what are the amendments of the national guard? what is the role of the national government, how we protect individual rights and liberties etc.. >> what's move forward and start talking about the events that press the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments. i want our audience, everybody on c-span it isn't just -- it is a special anniversary, it isn't just a to enter the 25th anniversary of the year that changes everything in human history, we the people. it's al
years, we have had revenues coming into the federal government at a level around 15% of gdp. that is a 60-year low. since 1960, we have never had a balanced budget in a year when revenues were less than 18% of gdp. in 2001, the last year we had a surplus, revenues were at 19.5% of gdp. we have a revenue problem. we need tax reform to solve it. some on the left have suggested corporate tax reform could be a source for new revenue but here i disagree. to preserve our international competitiveness, it is imperative we seek to reduce the corporate rate from 35% and do it on a revenue-neutral basis. this will boost growth and encourage more companies to reinvest in the united states. corporate tax reform, under the leadership of chairman baucus senator hatch should be treated separately from our attempt to get a handle on the deficit. but when it comes to the individual side of the code, our approach must be different. in this part of reform, the new money we collect from broadening the tax base cannot all be applied to prepare -- to reducing rates or else we will not get enough
to ensure that yes come the government is very much pro-life and that it would support legislation that would restrict abortion. this has all open up a bunch of new questions, some of which make them up at tonighttomorrow night's presidential debate and could come up in the second one. we are following this and we will see where it goes. jenna: it might be interesting if it comes up in the townhall today. we will be watching for that as well. reporter: it could be, maybe someone will bring up. we appreciated it always. you never know really what questions will be asked and it really does show the priority of voters in what questions and issues they want the candidates to address. jon: also interesting to hear what chris christie might say. we are continuing to monitor the next presidential debate. my next guest says that the president's performance in denver forced a major strategy change for the obama party. charlie gasparino joins us live. you are talking about the four letter word liar, right? reporter: everyone across the spectrum, even msnbc determined that barack obama had cl
. withstand back in place, struck down by the states in 1997 but the federal government, mandated by federal law, we already had two early decisions from district courts involving private plaintiffs or for profit plaintiffs and the issue to address the merits, there were procedural issues because of ongoing regulatory process that might create a sort of interim step in terms of going up and down the court but that actually is going to get resolved between now and august 1st, 2013. the administrative process will be done and the courts will invariably go straight and you will get merit decisions uniformly by the end of next year. >> those that depend on what the administration does and who wins? >> not really. what the administration has put into play is a piece of the problem. and also the constraints they put upon themselves in addressing that limited issue indicates that there is not going to be much if any relief in the offing for people who sued. basically reading of the writing on the wall or the federal register. there is some accommodation that doesn't include relieving the burden and
the ongoing u.s. drone strikes. on sunday, the pakistani government blocked the march from entering the tribal area of south waziristan, a frequent target of drone attacks. addressing the march, pakistan and political leader imran khan said the drone strikes are fostering hatred of the united states. >> these drone attacks are a violation of international law. these drone attacks are a violation of the human rights of the pakistani people. do we all condemn them? we want to send a message to america, the more drone attacks to carry out, the more the people will grow to hate you and raise their arms against you. our tribal people will not be scared off with drone attacks. >> more than 30 u.s. citizens with the group codepink traveled to pakistan to take part in the march and meet with drone strike victims. >> the illegal, immoral, a brutal attacks on the innocent people of waziristan and the fatah region must in now. these are illegal drone strikes carried out by cia. cia is a civilian organization using military equipment rid this is a war crime. >> they are illegal. they are against internati
and the democrats. how they essentially tried to bring the federal government's financial house to some kind of order. the answer is they failed. we have a federal government whose financial house is in total disorder, total disarray. it is a historic problem. to try to put it in english, we have a trillion dollars of iou outstanding in the world. the negotiations, they agreed to raise what they call the debt ceiling, so the government can borrow a couple more trillion dollars. we are going to run it run out of that borrowing authority january or february of next year. they're going to have to go back and authorized congress for more trillions of dollars of borrowing. the republicans and lots of people in congress don't want to authorize that. so there is going to be a bloody negotiation, unless they can work a deal. in a sense, this is a book about the past, but it's about the present. it is about where we are going and what the country's future is. if you think about it i would argue that the inability of the government to fix this borrowing debt deficit issue in the book, vice president b
objects to. there is no role for the government to be sort of people by race. >> the university of texas of austin's has what? guest: they say the supreme court has endorsed education and diversity as a compelling goal for the government and an exception to the usual rule that the government should not be classified people by race. it is true, and a 5-4 decision, the supreme court said that, but the key vote, sandra day o'connor, has retired, replaced by a more conservative judge, samuel alito, so in that they give us a new result. >> what is the result of this, who will hear it, who will decide? guest: only eight justices will decide. elena kagan is reduced from oregon and the case as a former u.s. solicitor general. it is a good bet the four more conservative justices, if not to strike an entirely, will limit the use of race. the three more liberal ones will go the other way. as usual, anthony kennedy will hold the deciding vote. on the one hand, he has said there have been some positive things about the importance of diversity. on the other hand, he has never voted to make sure that a
to the cyber threat requires the right policies and organizations across the federal government. for the past year, the department of defense has been working closely with other agencies to understand where are the lines of responsibility when it comes to cyber defense? where do we draw those lines? how do those responsibilities get executed? as part of that effort, the department is now finalizing the most comprehensive change to our rules of engagement in cyberspace in seven years. the new rules will make clear that the department has a responsibility not only to be thin d.o.d.'s networks -- to networks, but to defend the nation and our natural -- national interests in cyberspace. these new rules makes the department more agile and provides us with the ability to confront major threats quickly. to execute these responsibilities, we must have strong organizational structures in place. three years ago, the department took a major step forward by establishing the united states cyber command. under the leadership of a four start officer who also served as the director of the national security a
in pakistan tonight to stay away from government buildings and several major hotels. they said the pakistan government received a threat warning of terrorist attacks aimed at certain government buildings and hotels downtown. anti-war activists are protesting the american drone strikes this morning. conflicting accounts of problems at a foxconn factory. they deny that there were strikes. the factory admitted there were isolated disputes. there was no work stoppage. they are outraged as what they called the management overly strict demands. >> stink bugs are back. with temperatures dropping, they're heading in your homes. if you have not found them yet look out. it could be a matter of time. we have more on the fall infestation. >> they are creepy, crawly, and not to mention -- stinky. >> it's the worst thing i've ever seen in my life. >> he has tried everything to get these pesky bugs from running over his home. >>stomp them, and they hit you. sweep them, they come back. sometimes he has to change his clothes in the raw edge -- garage. >> it's so bad. >> it's not as virginia. this guy in pi
the relationship between this corporation is and the chinese government. it's been a key question. but for all of the questioning, a lot of it is conjecture. this aren't that many hard facts here, something i did ask chairman rogers about earlier today. >> we've had information from former and current huawei employees. we have both classified information. our foreign partners, australians and the british and others have passed along information they've seen whether it comes to huawei's activities which i think is a very clear indication i have no problem saying i would not use huawei equipment. i'd find other vendors. if you care about your consumer's data and the national security of the united states you need to look elsewhere. >> of course if you do believe, as i do, given my reporting on it, that the chinese are incredibly aggressive when it comes to cyber espionage, sue, and then you believe much wlaf of what is in this report, you certainly come to the conclusion if there is a telecommunications company that's becoming somewhat dominant around the globe that has the backing of or certain
. the protection against government sponsorship and promotion of religion, which is a vital component of religious liberty. i will just say a few words about where we are today and where we used to be. they are important right next to each other. as for the separation of church and state, the protection against government sponsorship of religion there was little and today it is far more robust, but absent flows and a lot of that depends on the current competition and chemistry of the supreme court and the rest of the federal court in state courts as well. but a while back there was virtually none. i think there is a great deal more of that protection today. it is very much in jeopardy. on the free exercise side, it is never been particularly robust in this country, unfortunately. and i think it is very fortunate. today it is a mixed bag. in 1990, the supreme court severely limited the constitutional protection for free exercise in the way that i think probably all of us at this table think was wrong. and since then, there have been legislative efforts to correct the problem. what the court said ba
that excites. ♪ >> shep: the israeli government is now reporting it's trying to pinpoint the source of drone that flew over the country on saturday. israel's air force is said to have shot down that drone and the military reports it was not carrying any explosives. there is no official word on the drone's origin, but security experts are pointing the finger at hezbollah. that's the terror group with strong roots in southern lebanon and the backing of iran. in fact, witnesses say israeli war planes flew low over southern lebanon on sunday in an apparent show of force. ton john hunt is with us. why do israeli officials think hezbollah is responsible? >> first of all, tracking the flight path. according to israeli media, military officials in that country are pretty confident that this drone took off south of siden, the coastal city in lebanon, then flew south over the mediterranean, took a left turn, came in over the gaza strip before heading in over the southern israeli desert where it was brought down. secondly, they point out that hezbollah has a history with drones. they launched one durin

difficult to govern, because redistricting is a part of this and the incentive among people in congress, whether it is a republican president or a democratic president, is to oppose virtually everything that the president of the opposite party wants to throudo. our system depends on cooperation and compromise. that's why many people across the political spectrum are very frustrated on how things are not working in washington. host: let's go to mark next. you could have a triangle between ohio, virginia, and florida, the three battleground states. mark is in florida. caller: thanks, steve. and thanks to your guests for all their work. seems whenever i call, you are hosting the show. at age 18 through age 30 i was in the u.s. marines and guarded the u.s. embassy and as a marine, which had its own demands. i did well at that. i am a unionized worker in the united states. i gave the non-unionized world a chance and got the beat out of me. i got my dignity back years ago by joining organized labor. my father was in the union. i moved south to florida from the midwest. i build an area called
, a lot of government jobs added. but for some reason, i've always been told you need 200 to 250 to make a dent. 114 got a 300 basis point drop? it's crazy. and there's a reason -- you know what they're calling people that are saying this. they're calling help truthers. throwing them in with the birthers. >> i don't believe that there was conspiracy to make the jobs number -- >> i know that. and anyone that says that will be called a truther. so you don't say the government's lying. you can't say that. yet if you add in two months more government workers than at any it time since 1948 for the past two months, the government can do -- >> but that goes to his point the u-6 number is -- i don't know if it's more accurate. >> it's broader and takes in to account the part-time workers that don't want to be part-time. they want the full-time job. so it's a broader measure of giving us the breadth of the labor market and the health of it and that's why when i say the unchanged number, i sort of ignored the headline number and didn't think it was that big of a deal. >> normally we'd focus on the
or even libya, he says he would work with the government of libya to find the guys that murdered our ambassador. well, obviously that's what the obama administration is doing. >> you have a lot of fodder for your weekend show, so we'll be watching it and also for suzanne malveaux's shows which is up and coming. thank you for taking the time to be on our show today. fareed zakaria, and as i sign off, i do want remind you "newsroom international" starts right now with suzanne malveaux. >> kuhn dem the president for leading from behind, declaring it is time to change -- criticized the obama administration for not having an overall strategy in this region, and here's how he summed it up. the know the president hopes for a safer, freer, aligned middle east with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> now, wolf, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you liste
the size of government, and governor romney wants to shrink government and bring things back to the private sector. we sort of are modeling in our office that either candidate to win would be not have big effect short-term in the market place, but more of a long-term economic situation that would take place. in making government bigger with president obama, versus shrinking government with romney. >> >> you say long-term, so the day after the election or day after inauguration day, we're not likely to feel a direct impact on our personal finances? >> no. we don't think the markets will have much volatility about that. it's more of a long-term outlook down the road. short-term, we have the fiscal cliff, the debt ceiling debate, and what's going on over in europe that's going to present volatility. we're optimistic, because businesses and wall street needs clarity and direction and for some time it's been an environment of uncertainty. it's why you've seen stagnant in the employment numbers. gdp at 1.3%. the fed is keeping the interest rates very low now in order to make sure there's a backdr
of government, and he shouldn't bristle at the question because this is what he believes. this is the core of his view. >> to that point, ari, how do you think this individual, this paul ryan, is going to manage himself in the debate against mr. joe biden? >> that's the question and it goes to something you said earlier in the show, which is a lot of the answers that are tough and scary when you look at the real repercussions of the ryan budget, a lot of the answers are ideas that basically this campaign wants to push until after the election. i'm a little reminded of the villain in the new "batman" who says now is not the time for fear. that comes later. and that's the problem, and i think you're going to see joe biden come out and explain exactly what it means to cut a third out of medicaid, which is for elderly middle class families and, by the way, a lot of what medicaid goes to is families who have a child with disabilities and who wouldn't be near the poverty line but for that child. you want to cut that program? we have to talk about what that means for american families. >> but i t
in power coming up in china. typically there is inaction on the part of the government in terms of huge programs where it be stimulus or not. many expect you may not get something substantive still march. there's also a great deal concern about the financial system. you hear it a lot. we all talk about the lack of validity of many of the statistic that is we still rely on. but within the financial system itself, where the debt really is, a number of metrics that are followed and thought to be worthy of following are not looking great. there's continued concerned. >> we're running smack into -- our companies have to tell the truth. but there's a huge cohort of companies in our company that don't need a whole lot of growth. so we're funneling into winners and leaving aside cyclicals as losers. >> world bank goes from 8.2 to 7.7. if you think 5 to 6 is the real number, should we be bracing for more -- >> yeah. look, these guys want to do everything incremental but the data's bad. i saw someone recommending gm today on strength of china sales. everyone wants to get ahead of the turn. but no
. >> not in 1972 when he was up senator george mcgovern challenged him to a debate. historian ken hughes from the university of virginia found these tapes of president nixon. in this never before heard recording nixon cites national security concerns as a reason for not debating. >> it wouldn't serve the interests of the country particularly at this time when very important negotiations are taking place involving matters of very great importance to the nation and which cannot be discussed, cannot and should not be discussed in a debate forum. >> reporter: at the time the vietnam war was at issue. and the president gives instructions for a statement from his campaign denying mcgovern's debate request. >> what should we say? that the president that no incumbent president should debate his opponent. >> that's right. >> the differences between these two are so great. >> reporter: richard nixon can't resist saying if there were a debate he would win. >> nixon was a champion debater as far as he was concerned and completely destroy george mcgovern i think if given a chance. >> of course, having a d
industrial supplier. he wants smaller government and is voting for mitt romney. >> i think that is the central question in this election. what is the size, the role, and the scope of government and what is its cost? >> both candidates will be looking for more supporters in this state right up to election day. susan, cbs news, columbus, ohio. >> but don't worry, soon enough the candidates will be back in virginia as well. >>> there's a new report that says pro and antigambling forces are spent more money on their ad campaign that was spent on the entire maryland governor's race. voters will go to the polls in november to decide whether or not they want to expand gambling in the free state. the baltimore sun reports, more than $35 million has been spent so far on that issue alone and that is more money in the total outlay of the martin o'malley, robert ehrlich campaigns in 2006. penn national is fighting a proposal to develop a casino at prince georges county. >>> more problems tonight for the former d.c. council chair, kwame brown. kwame, or should i say, mr. brown has bee
've got to tell their government to stop cyber attacking the united states. >> reporter: huawei aggressively pushed back. the company says the intelligence committee provided no clear evidence of wrong doing and it dismissed the report as politically motivated. a spokesman for huawei says the company is owned by its employees and its work around the world is trusted and proven. >> our procurements from us companies totaled $6.6 billion. that's tens of thousands of jobs. these recommendations put at risk american jobs. >> reporter: huawei appears to operate as a purely commercial enterprise, but it is hard to sort out who owns the company and how much of it. the intelligence committee report concludes some chinese telecomm equipment secretly transmitted information back to china. that's what concerns u.s. cyber- security experts. they fear the chinese government could use huawei's technology to access sensitive information. >> i think it is a legitimate concern. now the question is how much that concern is being used in the u.s. to block a much larger range of investments, becaus
that the best course for the united states was to continue to help the libyans with their self-governance and pursue the people that killed our ambassador. i don't think you would hear anything different from barack obama on that or anybody in this administration in terms of what their goals are there. i think in terms of taking actions and not just having words against iran, i'm not sure that that's a whole lot different than what you see if our government now believe that had iran was about on to strike with a nuclear weapon anywhere in the world. >> jonathan, i think you're exactly right. the basic problem that romney runs up against here is the same problem with domestic policy whshgs it comes to economic policy. he really at a substantive level doesn't have much to say because the campaign strategy has basically been whether it's the economy or foreign policy, take any given issue and say obama has failed, and everything is terrible. here's some statistics and make a vague and broad promise of leadership, new leadership, bold leer looedship, a bold strategy on romney's part that will
